Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 10.0.25136.1000 rs_prerelease 220606-1236 (Dev Channel)

Kind morning friends! Microsoft has released a new preview build of Windows 11 25136 for members of the Windows Insider program using the Dev channel.

Complete build number: 10.0.25136.1000.rs_prerelease.220606-1236.


Windows Explorer tabs and updated navigation bar

To help users work with multiple windows at the same time, Microsoft has added a tabbed interface to the title bar of the File Explorer window! Now users will be able to work simultaneously with several sections of “Explorer” within one window.

In addition, Microsoft has updated the navigation sidebar in File Explorer to make it easier for users to navigate between the folders that matter to them. The updated structure and organization of the navigation sidebar gives you faster access to your most frequently used folders (Favorites) and to your OneDrive profiles that have been added to Windows. If you use multiple OneDrive accounts on Windows, files can now be tagged with the account name they belong to to avoid confusion. “Known folders” such as “Desktop”, “Documents”, “Pictures”, “Downloads”, etc., are now not displayed by default in the side navigation bar under the “This PC” section, in order to emphasize this section just on disks.

Note. This change is currently not available to all Insiders in the Dev channel. The fact is that Microsoft wants to collect feedback from a small group of users before the change becomes available to all Insiders.

Content of dynamic widgets on the taskbar

Microsoft is trying some changes to add more dynamic content from widgets to the taskbar. In addition to viewing the current weather, now the “Widgets” button on the taskbar will display messages from the widgets “Sports”, “Finance”, alerts about the latest news.

This feature allows you to quickly know when something important has happened with these widgets, so you’ll always be up to date with the latest news.

The displayed content will be concise and clear, but you can always find out the details if you open the widget panel. If you don’t interact with the content that appears on the taskbar, the widget button will automatically revert to showing the current weather.

Note. This change is currently not available to all Insiders in the Dev channel. The fact is that Microsoft wants to collect feedback from a small group of users before the change becomes available to all Insiders.

Changes and improvements

  • Input:
    • Insiders can now report inappropriate animated GIFs to Microsoft directly from the Emoji Panel (WIN + ).


  • General:
    • We fixed an issue that caused some PCs to be erroneously identified as tablets. If this happened, then in the “Explorer” the compact mode and the ability to hide the checkboxes in front of the files stopped working.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing a GSOD with a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION error in previous builds for the Dev Channel.
  • Task bar:
    • We fixed an issue where applications on the taskbar sometimes overlapped the system tray area.
    • When hovering over an application on the taskbar, the button will stop flashing if the application requires the user’s attention.
  • Start menu:
    • We fixed an issue where the Start menu could only show one column in the Recommended section.
    • If you have pinned many apps at once to the main Start menu screen, it should now update correctly and display all app icons.
  • Options:
    • We fixed an issue from the previous build that caused the Disks and Volumes section under System -> Memory to not show the available disks and volumes.
  • Window:
    • A fix has been made to address a rare issue where the application title bar would sometimes become transparent or not appear at all in some applications.
  • Windows Update:
    • We fixed an issue where Windows Update could unexpectedly display the 0x00000000 error when in fact everything is fine.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in a GSOD with a HYPERVISOR_ERROR error on some devices when trying to upgrade to a new build.
  • Task Manager:
    • We fixed an issue where Task Manager would sometimes crash on startup if you had previously switched between light and dark themes or changed the system accent color.
  • Other:
    • We fixed an issue that could result in increased latency or freezes in games when using vertical sync.
    • We fixed an issue that could cause the system to hang on some devices after running the command wsl –shutdown.

Note. Some of the fixes listed above may be included in the cumulative updates for the October 5 release version of Windows 11.

Known Issues

  • General:
    • In this build, Insiders using the Surface Pro X will see a black screen when trying to wake up from sleep. To return the device to a working state, you will have to turn it off by long holding the power button, and then turn it back on. Microsoft recommends pausing receiving new builds until a build is released that fixes the issue.
    • We are investigating reports that the “Mica” material and the “Acrylic” effect are incorrectly displayed (not rendered) in such system elements as the Start menu, Action Center, etc.
    • We are investigating reports that the Shut Down feature in the Start menu is not working for some Insiders. Instead of shutting down, the computer restarts.
    • Some games that use Easy Anti-Cheat may crash or cause GSOD to appear on your device.
  • Windows Explorer:
    • Up arrow icon not displaying correctly in Windows Explorer tabs. This will be fixed in the next update.
  • Live Captions:
    • Some applications do not allow you to display real-time subtitles in full screen mode. For example, this applies to video players.
    • Some apps at the top of the screen that were closed before Live Captions launched will re-launch behind the Live Captions window at the top. Use the system menu (ALT + ) when the application has focus to move the window down.

I wish you a successful update!
